Seth Gabel returned to Vancouver last November to guest-star on two shows — Fringe and Arrow. To the delight of Fringies, he reprised his role as Fringe agent Lincoln Lee but an aged,still hot version married to Fauxlivia in alt-universe 2036. And he guest-starred on an upcoming Arrow as a nefarious drug dealer known as “The Count”, who has big plans to distribute a new drug in Starling City, one that Oliver Queen’s sister Thea is arrested for using.
I did see Seth Gabel as aged Lincoln Lee on location for Fringe but not as “The Count” on location for Arrow. Some of his biggest drug dealer scenes were filmed overnight in mid-November on the Front Street Parkade in New Westminster. On my way back from a visit to the Bates Motel set in Aldergrove I stopped by this shoot but didn’t linger after I was told it was a closed set. Obviously, I should have tried harder because others did manage to get close and even to meet Gabel in costume. Two months later, TV Line has a First Look at Vertigo promo images from The CW of The Count squaring off with Oliver Queen and his bodyguard Diggle, filmed at the Front Street Parkade (you can see the Skytrain bridge over the Fraser River in the background).
